About Bengal Cats

front 02

The Bengal is a hybrid breed of domestic cat. Bengals result from crossing a domestic feline (American Short-hair), with the Asian leopard cat, a small wild cat who lives in south, and east of Asia. Bengal Cats are considered domestic pets from the fifth generation of their ancestor the Asian Leopard Cat as follows:

- F1 is the result of crossing between Asian Leopard Cat and a domestic cat (Here the kittens have 50% wild character, and all males kittens are sterile)
- F2 represents the crossing between F1 (female) and a domestic (male), like at F1 all the males are sterile
- F3 is the result of crossing between F2 (female) and a domestic (male), here a few males are fertile
- F4 is the result of crossing between F3 and a domestic. F4 is the last generation of wild animal.

From the fifth generation up Bengal cats are considered a pet, having all of the domestic characteristics, but keeping the instincts of the Asian Leopard.

Breed history

The first controlled hybridization between a domestic cat and an Asian leopard cat was performed in the 70's by Dr. William Centerwall in Arizona United States of America {Wikipedia}. He tried to obtain a hybrid with the appearance of a leopard and the temperament of a domestic one. These wild cats are usually found in Asian countries, such as Indonesia or The Philippines.
The hybridization project was took over by Jean Mill who received the TICA recognition for a new breed called Bengal cat in 1983. The name has no connection with the Bengal tiger, but with the Leopard cat's scientific name: Prionailurus bengalensis. Jean Mill wanted much more than just a new hybrid breed, she wished to obtain domestic cats by eliminating the aggressive behavior coming from the Asian leopard, but keeping it's wild appearance. So, she kept breeding the hybrids with each other until she obtained a non-aggressive domestic pet with a beautiful and exotic appearance. Bengal cats are considered domestic if they are at the 4th generation from his ancestor.

The body is longer, solid and well muscled than other domestic cats. Their back legs are bigger from the front ones, helping them to execute long jumps. Their eyes are bigger and have various colors, such as grey, brown, gold, green and even blue. Bengal kittens have beautiful eyes when they are little. The fur is short, soft, fine and shines in the sun light, so they don't need special care. Fur color and contrast of the Bengal kittens are finalized at the age of 2 years. The stud is bigger than a queen, reaching 5.5 - 12 kg, while the queen reaches only 3.5 - 6 kg. Bengals have an average life expectation of 12 - 16 years.
Two is the number of births that a queen can have in one year, being able to give birth to 4-6 kittens each time. Bengals love to be in the spotlight, always in the mood to play, their also very smart, athletic and agile. Usually they climb to the highest places and use them as observation points or launch pads. And as incredible as it sounds, they love water and they're good swimmers. Not rare are the cases when Bengal kittens followed their owners to the bathroom and stood there until their placed in the tub or sink to take a bath, which is funny because most domestic cats hate water. Due to their intelligence, Bengals become bored unless they have a playing partner or some special toys to play with. They're getting along very well with other domestic animals, even dogs. There can be quite easily trained and learn up to 30 different commands. Since they are young, you can train your kittens what they are allowed to do and what not, later will be a little harder.
